, let's start with the economy which everyone agrees is the number one concern for voters. senator johnson in wisconsin, let me put up numbers, the unemployment rate is nationally 7.8% and gdp growth in the third quarter rose from 1.3% in the second quarter to 2.0 and it is still a weak recovery but aren't the president's policies starting to turn things around? >> no, we have had incredibly tepid, meager recovery, and the fact that gdp rose 2%, all you can say is it is less bad news and what happened here in wisconsin, after the first debate, the very false character president obama spent hundreds of millions of dollars portraying governor romney was shattered and when wisconsin saw it, he was a man with integrity and intelligence and had a plan unlike president obama, who has no ways to save social security or focus and unlike the senate, there has been no leadership in three years and, ryan paul, has the courage to put forward real proposals. >> chris: let me, senator warner talk about the economic recovery, weak as it is in historical terms, the fact is, even though, as i say,

as the marathon is concerned, mayor bloomberg saying this infuses $300 million into our local economy, so i think that is a push. i would imagine a big push there on staten island is trying to get the power back on. >> reporter: power is a major issue. there are policemen in every single intersection. because the power is out, so many gas stations can't power up to actually pump the gasoline, and that is why you see stations that do have power have so many long lines. it's just a domino affect. problem after problem after problem with the power and the power's been out here for a week now. >> all right, paul wagner, good to have you on the ground there with perspective. thank you. >>> still ahead, a fight caught camera at the local high school. why the mother of one of the girls said this could have been prevented. >> and she made a fortune making body shaping underwear. why the founder of spanx is opening her first store in our area. >> and cars trashed after a massive water main break. the question tonight, who is to blame, gary? >> we have had a little bit of sunshine today, and it looks like

[ minto ] you know, those ads saying mitt romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme. so i looked into it. turns out, romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue's important to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. what mitt romney's tv ads say about women? [ romney ] i'm mi

and the marathon like those in the past is responsible for bringing in millions of dollars to the local economy, but friday during the 5:00 news word came. ing news out of new york city. mayor michael bloomberg says the new york city marathon will not happen sunday. >> i really couldn't believe it because it seemed like the mayor of the city said it was a go. >> he's a maryland runner among the estimated 40,000 runners who expected to take part in the event. harris rosenslide was planning to run with his buddy steve who is already in new york all the way from new zealand. steve is blind and running it year after year is extra special. now it will be a weekend in new york without the big race. >> maybe we'll take some run in central park or we'll try to do something or fry to enjoy new york city -- try to enjoy new york city for what it's worth. >> harris is certainly sympathetic of the criticism and the suffering. the race would have started on staten island where at least 20 people died. it would have shut down roads and bridges already congested post sandy and as many as 1,000 cops would have
. >> is the economy the biggest concern of these young voters? >> yeah, it still is. the top concern is jobs for the young people and the economy. but when we dig in it's really finding a job, especially those who aren't going on to college, making sure they can find jobs. even those who do go to college they are graduating on average with $25,000 worts of debt and then struggling to find a job on top of that. the economic situation for these young people is real. and it certainly they are look most closely at when deciding who should be the next president. >> what are the challenges to get the young voters out to the poll. >> first is the process itself. young people are starting to pay attention. can't tell you how many calls we were getting in our office saying i'm preparing to go vote. i'm going early on election day, where do i register. in most states i have to tell those voters it's just too late. we are really pushing same day voter registration states and election registration and making sure people get registered and cast a ballot. second thing is just intimidation of doing somethi

's really all about the economy. talk to me about this. is there truth in here? >> this ad is broadly speaking true. no politician is proposing to ban contraception. the issue here is rule instituted by the obama administration that forced employers including religious employers like catholic hospitals to pay for contraception in the healthcare plans. romney opposed that. obama supported it. in terms of whether that will be available, that's not true. romney's position is he opposed abortion in all cases as of rape, incest and when the life of the mother is at risk. he's changed his opinion overtime from being firmly pro choice in the 90s when he ran for senate to becoming pro-life and at one point in a debate in 2007 said that he would sign a law to ban all abortions but he said that is not political sociable or desirable. >> you can pull anything you want. >>> one of the most dramatic ads is pro obama ad building the stage. let's take a look. >> out of the blue one day we were told to build a 30 foot stage. gathered the guys and we built that 30 foot stage not knowing what it was fo

divided country. the economy has recovered at a slow rate, but has recovered and i think that's been a lot of the factor. do people feel like we've recovered enough to give the president a chance to keep building on that or try a different route? enough of the midwestern states, that probably will be decisive. but the one poll that matters is on election day. the reality is, depends on who shows up and votes. >> absolutely, this will be a nail biter. i think the turning point was october 3rd in the first presidential debate when mitt romney came out and showed he was a principle but practical candidate for president. since that point basically the obama strategy, which was to hit mitt, tear him down and say he wasn't who he said he was, and the voters saw the essential practical and he started rising in the polls. he said i want to work across party lines and that's really the point now. >> let's talk about, though, if the -- whoever wins, if congress still is not -- if congress is controlled and the senate is controlled by the party that doesn't represent the president, are we still going
